Recipe review - Mandalay Beef casserole

Mandalay Beef casserole
Pillsbury Family Cook Book (1963) page 271

1 pound ground beef
8 oz (1 cup) can tomatoes
1 cup cooked rice
¼ cup chopped onion
¼ cup canned pineapple tidbits, drained
1 Tablespoon raisins
2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon curry powder (I used Mild Curry)
¾ teaspoon salt
chopped peanuts, optional

Oven 350 and this serves 6

Saute beef in skillet; drain off fat. Combine with remaining ingredients (except peanuts) in 1 ½ quart casserole dish. If desired, sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes.

Opinion; yummmmm!!! Don’t let the idea of pineapple and raisins turn you off from trying this meal. Greg does not generally like pineapple but he ate 2 helpings of this one. Some things that I changed: I only had a thick style of Lea & Perrins (Worcestershire sauce) and since I have 2 more bottles I did not buy the regular style and as I stated I used Mild Curry powder. I also did not use the peanuts and did not bake the dish.
